The San Francisco Giants were reviewing the surveillance footage from Sunday’s game because Orioles outfielder Adam Jones said a fan threw a banana at him during the game. However, the Giants couldn’t identify the person that threw the banana at Jones. They also apologized to Jones and the Orioles, reports John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter).
Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reported (via Twitter) on Friday that GM Brian Sabean said a team asked about Tim Lincecum prior to the trade deadline, but it was a team that was on Lincecum’s no-trade list. Sabean did reiterate that the Giants will make Lincecum a qualifying offer.
With the Giants hitting struggles this year, there’s no plan to fire hitting coach Hensley Meulens. That’s not Sabean’s M.O. midseason. All coaches are evaluated after the season, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter).
Congratulations to Brandon Belt who has been named NL Player of the Week!! Belt hit .440 with 20 total bases, eight runs scored, two homers, three doubles and five RBI during that week span.
